Les, you know what else I do?
I make a point to ask Kate if she'd like to do something with me.
Or rather could I join her doing something.
She'll choose a bike ride/walk, a board game (this is a good one to get in the habit of early!).
That way we spend time together but it's something kind of on her terms.
Last night we all sat on the porch in the dark and watched the lightening.
She was a chatter box the entire time! Other times I can't get her to tell me anything.
